. and i think partly because the obama administration about whether the profit incentive is even relevant in today's world. >> i think that's a fair point. i think it's a very important argument to have. by the way, higher education, the for profit guys are the ones paying taxes, both property and income taxes, whereas the not for property guys are the ones receiving subsidies. as far as i'm concerned, money is money. the only difference in private and public money is ideological. you draw a line between the two. public money becomes purer -- >> but it's worth ten cents on the dollar. >> i don't disagree with you. >> you're one of the old democrats. you're looking around saying what am i. >> i don't -- by the way, it's sort of what we were talking about earlier with iran. i don't think it's a question of choosing one or the other. i think you need to have a healthy balance of both. but if you start off with a regulatory bias against the for profit sector. >> you do. >> i understand, i don't disagree. >> i'm appealing to you, stand up and be -- >> i'm sitting down -- >> i think bi

we'll fact check and see. the obama administration will fact check and see and make sure that what they've estimated is the true cost. >> i just don't understand this, bob. an estimated bill based on what? something like 1/3 of the people signing up here have not really signed up because there's no payment mechanisms. we're going to have guest estimates and the government is going to give the insurance company the money and the insurance company is going to hand over the subsidies to people who didn't sign up officially. this is a little "alice in wonderland" for me. >> you know how screwed up healthcare.gov was? well, they didn't fix the back end. it's so screwed up that the federal government, the obama administration, can't pay the insurance companies their share of the subsidy premium. people get subsidies to help buy insurance and the federal government provides those. the administration hasn't built that part of the administration yet. here we are, it's almost january 1. the back -- almost none of the back part of the system works. they still can't transfer the enrollment rec

not exactly pleased with the kind of response he's been getting from the obama administration about security. and depending on where you look, congressman, you know, people on the right to some extent say there was never even any thought to getting security in there. and people on the left say, you know, when i had a kid, should i have gotten rid of my kid when i saw a few glitches? no, you fix the glitches. it's a wide spectrum. what wept into the planning for security? >> well, unfortunately, not much. this isn't about wanting the site to fail itself. you're pushing people. people have lost their health care. they need to be able to access this site in order to get on and get a policy by january. so that's our concern. and what you've done is you've opened them up to a level of risk using this website i've never seen. standard site of this size would be about 500,000 lines of code, roughly, maybe a little less. the code in healthcare.gov is about 5 million lines of code. and it has never been thoroughly tested. and so we know of a very low level access problem and meaning that som

? >> president obama is trying to get out of the defensive crouch he's been with the struggles over the healthcare.gov website. now that the administration believes it has turned around that website, it's trying to go on offense and stalk about his economic agenda for narrowing income inequality. part of that is health care itself. part of that is investments and infrastructure and education. part of it, as the president said in the speech today at center for american progress, is a raise in the minimum wage. >> last month voters in new jersey decided to be the 20th state to raise theirs even hi high higher. that's why the d.c. council decided to do it, too. i agree with those voters. i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the entire country. >> note, president obama invoked new jersey, the state of governor chris christie, who may be a republican candidate for president in 2016. this is a difficult goal to accomplish because many republicans, even though the president disputes this argument, make the ar umeguments is going to cost

back to those cancelled plans, larry, when the administration announced the fix for the plan cancellations that many states have adopted. that means they can be back on the market for another year. that means the enrollees are not entering the obama carriesing pools and there are fears that the pool will be much less healthy than expected. the change is now for the federal government to open wider that spigot of payouts in reinsurance program that is supposed to last through 2016. >> we have known this. what's new is the switcheroo from the president. i get that. but i don't think, you know, i don't think people really knew going back that in the fine print of this bill was essentially a three-year potential rescue of the insurance companies. if they don't get enough revenues and they have too many claims. i mean, what do you expect? if you have a special spot for processing the sick and the elderly god bless them. i'm saying you should have known that this was going to come. and the polls have said the young people don't want this thing. i don't think people knew, hadley, th
